Beautiful refined casual boot,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: FRYE Women's Paige Tall Burnished Riding Boot (Apparel)
I am normally a 10B with a high instep and wider forefoot. Last year I ordered these boots from the Endless closeout sale in a 10 and was sent 2 left foot boots so they were returned but I did learn that the colour was accurately portrayed and 10s were much too big which is why I ordered the 9.5s this time. I will be wearing this boot with jeans and other narrow pants but would also see it as appropriate with skirts if you like a flat boot. To my eye this is not a "dressy " boot but it has a kind of understated elegance and due to the somewhat (for Frye) wider footbed is extremely comfortable once on. The leather is also soft and flexible so needs no breaking in.
As usual , with a high instep, the boot is a little difficult to get on. Instead of the plastic bag trick
I simply apply some blister stick to the instep and heel area of my sock and it slides right on. I expect I will not have to do this too many times before it slides on easily. Ample calf room and I am 5' 10" with athletic calves.
I own 5 pairs of Frye boots in 3 sizes.
Size 9.5- Short Harness Boot and Paige Tall Riding Boot
Size 10-Dakota Boot and Short Dorado Boot
Size 11-Veronica Slouch
